A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

LA SALLE'S sophomore guard, a transfer from a Southern school who can nail threes with ease from the wing, played a key role in the Explorers' 87-72 steamrolling of visiting Duquesne Wednesday night. No, that description doesn't fit only Jordan Price, the two-time reigning Big 5 Player of the Week for the Explorers, who transferred from Auburn in 2013. It also works pretty aptly for Cleon Roberts, who came to La Salle at the same time as Price from Georgia Southern. Roberts and Price dropped bombs from deep to start the night, as the Explorers (15-11, 7-6 Atlantic 10)

SPURRED BY a white-hot shooting performance from Quade Green, this one witnessed up-close by Villanova coach Jay Wright, Ss. Neumann-Goretti moved closer to a seventh consecutive Catholic League basketball title. With the rising sophomore guard connecting on 10 of 12 field-goal attempts on the way to 26 points, the Saints, who led by as many as 15 points, held off never-say-die La Salle, 70-65, last night in front of a large crowd at the Palestra. Green shot 5-for-5 from the floor, including 4-for-4 from beyond the arc, in the first half.

There are times when being first is good and times when it's not. La Salle did not want to be the first team to drop a home conference game to Duquesne this season, and the Explorers made sure that didn't happen Wednesday night. Sandwiching the first half of their game against Duquesne with 12-0 runs at the beginning and end, La Salle won at home for the fifth time in six games, easily beating Duquesne, 87-72, at Tom Gola Arena. "We don't tell them that - that would be nuts," La Salle coach John Giannini said jokingly.

A SUMMER OF death and seasons of change brought Jordan Price to the pinnacle of Big 5 basketball. That always seems to be the path for these quick-fit La Salle transfers. Price cycled through three high schools in 4 years. He found himself mired in a lousy situation at Auburn, injured, out of shape, losing. He lost his grandfather, then his mentor, in a span of 2 months. "It was a painful time for me," Price said. "I know God's always with me. Just got to get through the day. " His days have brightened considerably.

Hanycz, head of Brescia University College, a Catholic school in London, Ontario, will take the helm of the 6,200-student La Salle on July 10. The Canadian educator will be the first layperson to lead the Philadelphia university, whose previous presidents have been Christian Brothers.

ON A VISIT to Philadelphia in November, Colleen Hanycz did what most visitors do when in our midst: She ate her first cheesesteak. The Canadian native isn't sure which locale she consumed said sandwich, only remembering that the eatery was inside the Reading Terminal Market and featured a "Best of" sign. The sandwich "alone is reason to move to Philadelphia," Hanycz said yesterday. In fact, a much higher calling has attracted the married mother of three here: Hanycz was named president of La Salle University yesterday by the school's Board of Trustees.

La Salle University scholar Stuart Leibiger found his way to Washington - the president, not the state - through a series of excursions. As a boy, he immersed himself in Lincoln, visiting presidential sites during a family trip through Illinois. He detoured into Civil War history in high school, met up with Madison and Jefferson while an undergraduate at the University of Virginia. Not until he was earning his doctorate at the University of North Carolina in the 1990s did he fully arrive at his destination, immersing himself in the public and private lives of the nation's first president.

Drew Gordon had a stellar run in nine seasons as La Salle's football coach, guiding the Explorers to six Catholic League championships, including five straight from 2008 to 2012, and a PIAA Class AAAA state crown. After several months of consideration, the program's third all-time winningest coach announced his decision to step down from the position Tuesday. "I thought about it in early December and said, 'Let me wait till after the holidays before I do anything,' " Gordon said.
